We've kept a range of options at this time, covering those that hold both keys and IDs as well as those with clips for your belt or pocket and carabiners for everywhere else. But it remains tough to beat options from top name Key-Bak, and we've included their Super 48 and Original. The Super is the model for those who expect to carry a lot of weight, while the Original is a lighter duty choice. The Naturebelle Badge Reel is a fine alternative, especially since it comes in a 10-pack that's great for those who are rough on their stuff.
We also decided to add two options that are a little different, the Youowo Lanyard Reel Set and the Nite Ize SlideLock KeyRack. The former includes a lanyard for neck wear and offers a handy ID holder, although this isn't as waterproof as the company claims. The latter isn't actually retractable, but it's a popular alternative as it keeps keys safe and accessible. The locking mechanism it uses is almost too good, though, as it can take a couple of tries to get it open.
